Thanks how about the bearing insert outer diameter?

I think its doable but length of the Heim's might be the issue in an affordable range of rod ends.

I don't have a link on hand to measure and I'm not pulling my bike apart to measure it.

I did feel like you guys, the old Fords are best until I got my 05 F150. This has been the best truck ever. Good handling, noiseless to drive, 300HP, killer sound system, and has been super dependable. Down side, 14 MPG.

Ditto! My '08 S'Crew is a nice pick-up. Painful at the pump though!

Yep, 7.3 Powerstroke, 160cc injectors, custom chip, intake/exhaust, built trans. Doesn't like to hook up when it's wet out (or dry out sometimes). I need a good limited slip or locker in the back...

Mine too. I grew up in these square body Fords, first truck was a '87 F150 with a 4 speed manual and 300 straight six. My powerstroke is a ton of fun and big enough for the whole family, dogs included. I do miss my '75 F150 4x4 with a 390 though.

Mine '95 had 165k on it when I bought it in '08, paid $5k for it. Still only has 192k on it. I wish the older body style had the extended cab with the rear half doors like the newer ones... the Crew Cab is a bit long with a longbed.

Mine is definitely loud inside, but about 350hp and 700 lb/ft. Plus I get about 15mpg in town and close to 19-20 highway.

That's a bummer Honda Maui will always be my favorite shop. Did you know Greg his store manager when I was there, he got me to start roadracing.
